So frequently on the fishing message boards, I read of people getting upset when a tuber floats by or some family full of children start playing in the stream as if that is some type of crime.
The thing that really makes me angyr isn't some kid skipping stones or a bunch of teens jumping in the creek. They are enjoying the public water just as I am. What really angers me is poaching of any type.
The fishing regulations are all over the place and it's the responsibility of every fisherman to know and understand the regulations on any body of water he/she is fishing (or hunting regulations for that matter).
Taking game in any way that is against the regulations is poaching regardless of the intent. Failure to read and understand the regulations is no more of an excuse than the person who does it intentionally.
OK rant over.
